Sun Valley, Idaho

We went skiing a few weeks ago in Sun Valley Idaho.  It was the first time on an airplane for our kids and their three cousins.  Our group was six adults and five kids in all.

Reading on the balcony overlooking Dollar Mountain.

The Roundhouse Restaurant with Ann Harriott.  We sneaked away for a day of skiing on our own.

Movie night

Ernest Hemingway monument near the Sun Valley Inn.  Sun Valley and nearby Ketchum were his last haunts.  The area has a fascinating history of pop culture from the 1930s through the 1960s.  Hemingway was a big draw.  Seems the old guy really cashed in on the commercial endorsements out here.  Ketchum was his last home, and he ended his own life there in 1961.
